    This is my SWTF Kup.

    When I first saw the Emperor Palpatine Imperial Shuttle, I instantly thought it would make a good Kup. I figured he could be the mentor for my SWTF Goldbug. It would be like an Obiwan/Luke type of relationship.

    The head was sculpted using epoxy putty. The face is from SWTF Saesee Tiin and the helmet is a combo of other heads. The lightsaber is from a SWTF Luke Skywalker that I am using for another bash. I used custom mixed blues to give the whole thing a metallic finish. One blue is a 50/50 dark blue and silver mix and the other is silver with a little blue added. I used these colors to keep the look authentic for the Star Wars style while keeping Kup's G1 color scheme. I was going for a more realistic look.

    My other SWTF bashes:
    SWTF Megatron
    SWTF Millennium Convoy
    SWTF Goldbug.

    I like it too... I always thought that a Transformer cross-over should be the Cybertronians taking on the forms of that said universe ie starscream transforms into a jedi starfighter or something

    Though I don't currently have plans for starscream, I am WIP with a Sunstorm from the Anakin Jedi Starfighter. It looks so much like the original seekers Cybertronian jet mode from the first episode of G1.

    Agree 100%. But that's what you get when you have the Star Wars toy engineers trying to make them instead of the Transformers toy engineers. But some molds are still decent enough to work with.

    Actually, in the personal mythos I am using when imagining my SWTF bashes, there is no Matrix and the Death Star is created as an attempt to defend against Unicron after his herald Megatronus (aka The Fallen) (a WIP bash of a Magnaguard Fighter) finds his way to their galaxy far, far away.

    Yeah I have all of the delta 7 molds and they would be my first choice for Seekers.
    The molds are weaker than tfers proper, but many of them are very good and there transformations are more intriguing than the standard main-line figs.
    Massdestruction, I like your Mythos concept, and look forward to seeing more of what you come up with

    Yeah, I do have a few more completed that I will be showing soon and I have several more planned.

    I don't usually give teasers, but I will say one word... Dynobots.

    You are right: that shuttle cockpit works well for Kup's chest. I wonder if it could serve for Blurr as well...

    I think the idea of a shuttle for Blurr would be a bit out of character. He's all about speed and the shuttle doesn't convey that. Though I have seen some people use the shuttle (minus the wings) for bashes of Sideswipe and others. Those look good, but I want to keep my SWTF customs as the Star Wars vehicles.

    Prior to making my SWTF Shockwave, I had planned to use that Darth Maul Sith Infiltrator for SWTF Blurr. But, while making the Dynobots, I couldn't help but make a Shockwave to accompany them. So, if I get my hands on another Infiltrator, I might use that or I could see using one of the Jedi Starfighters (the triangle ones) for Blurr.
